Uh-Oh! Put a quarter in the swear jar!
The typically very family-friendly actor Tom Hanks appeared on “Good Morning America” and accidentally dropped an F-Bomb in the middle of his interview. What a way to give a wake up call to the nation huh?
The verbal incident happened while Hanks was promoting his new film, “Cloud Atlas” and the host, Elizabeth Vargas ask him to speak in character. Hanks refused to do the accent because most of what came from his character was curse words.
After some urging, the star gave a little taste of the dialect and accidentally dumped the F word in the middle of the act. He instantly realized what he said and both of them jumped out from their seats with shocked faces:

Let the Parents Television Council to take an action with the slip, as the media watchdog released a statement on the incident:
Once again, a morning news show has allowed the harshest profanity to be broadcast into every living room and breakfast table in the country. This is just another in a long, sad string of similar instances where all of the major network morning shows have permitted this inappropriate and offensive content. These cannot and must not be dismissed as mistakes, and it’s time for the networks to step up, take responsibility for what they broadcast, and ensure that this never happens again.
You’re forgiven Tom! No harm done!
